i am running conectiva 10 on my laptop. My goal is to have skype working here. I downloaded the static qt binary version and run it as root (it doesnt run as a regular user) but when i try to establish communication i get this message:
[root@eyelet skype_staticQT-220.127.116.11]# ./skype
read error, res = -1 , handle = 29
And i have no sound in nor out. I can hear the phone ring but not the other party. Does anyone know how to probe for a built-in microphone in a laptop? And what that error message means? I am checking posts at
Which is supported by skype itself.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
